HW Studios, London (UK)

“Canvas studios being the crown of the development allowing artists to be there develop their own spaces.”


Hackney Wick Studios approached The Studio to create a concept design for the HW building to maintain the influence of studio spaces and the opportunity of a commercial addition to keep up with the developing area and neighbouring Hackney Wick station.

The site sits parallel to the Hackney Wick Station. Presenting an opportunity or the public traffic to interact with the site.


The Studio  planned and analysed to create a concept design for the HW building, ensuring we preserved the influence of studio spaces within the area by creating a series of canvas spaces which intertwined into a folding envelope, whilst maintaining the rustic and historic warehouse atmosphere.  The way to make a commercially viable while keeping the ground floor courtyard was about extruding upwards. 

Our design utilised the LLDC masterplan extensively to create a thriving and affordable workspace that ensures the continued growth of the local creative economy of Hackney Wick.
